Are you sick of watching endless videos where people are good at things? Then I have something fun for you! Watch as I begin my journey to learn how to decorate cakes. In this episode, I try to create my first icing rose.
In the video, I joke that comments should be directed to Emmy Made in Japan. Her videos are awesome. If you like my videos, you will love hers.
I also welcome constructive feedback on how I can improve my technique. I’m pretty sure that I’m using the wrong petal tip (I’ll talk about that in my follow-up video in a few days), and I think that my icing needed to be chilled a bit more. It was a warm day, and my icing was straight out of the room temperature tub.
To make up for the long hiatus, here’s the first episode of Eat at Lu’s from my new apartment. In this episode, I unbox a cake decorating kit in preparation of things to come.
Also, it’s called an icing spatula. That’s the phrase I was trying to think of.
After a longer than short hiatus, I present my review of Spread That, a butter knife that heats up using the heat from the user’s hand. This is the final video at my old apartment, and now that I have finished my PhD and I’m all settled in at the new place, I’ll be able to post more regularly!
In this video, I test out the EggXact Peel for its intended use opening eggs, and then I fail in kiwi class.
Is there an easier way to chop a salad? In this episode, I test out a device that purports to make it easier to eat healthy.
Part two of the Puffle expose in which I explore the sweet puffle. My new friend Merle also auditions to be my new sous chef.
